Amitabh Bachchan’s Silence And Refusal To Comment On Kathua Rape Case Is Infuriating Social Media Users

Updated on 10 July, 2018 at 6:20 pm By

Recently, the horrific spate of sexual violence against women sent shock waves across the nation. As voices of protests and outrage snowballed to demand justice for the Kathua and Unnao victims, Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded by saying that culprits will not be spared. Thereafter, in London, he insisted that rapes should not be politicised. Different Bollywood celebrities too have shown their outrage by protesting on social media, including Big B’s own son Abhishek Bachchan. However, the Shahenshah of Bollywood has comfortably kept mum!

Recently, he held a press conference for his upcoming movie “102 Not Out”. A reporter asked him about his feelings on the heinous rape cases. As government’s ambassador of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign it does make him accountable for giving a nuanced reply. Instead, he shared that he doesn’t want to talk about it as it makes him feel disgusted. He said:

“Even discussing this issue feels disgusting, don’t bring up this issue. It is terrible to even talk about it.”

A few days back, when the incident got highlighted in media, Big B posted an image congratulating his daughter on her upcoming book. Though a sweet gesture from a father, that forced the netizens to raise a crucial question. How can he keep quiet about the rape incident when he is a father himself? Here are some of the reactions:

Previously, just before the release of his movie “Pink,” he tweeted about how India needs to stand up against rape. Here’s the tweet:

 

 

Being a public figure comes with moral obligations but that fact seems to elude this superstar. Is the only time he is going to take a stand with generic comments about women empowerment when his ‘feministic’ movies are set to release?
